Next Level: Smiley

image

Hey, y’all: The grin is in. (Not that that would surprise Bobby McFerrin for a second.) Here’s how to put a smile on your body and, I’m sure, your face. —erica

LEVEL I: Bing Bang keeps things super-subtle (and, obviously, adorable).

LEVEL II: Happiness is this Anya Hindmarch scarf, no?

LEVEL III: A single earring from Alison Lou with at least 2x the charm.

LEVEL IV: Markus Lupfer knows that some days require something more intense—this sweater's like wardrobe prozac.

If this made you happy, so will this.

Couple Up: Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet

image

These two never met a pattern they didn’t like. I mean, to get inside their closets…oh, wait: That’s exactly what it’s like to be Zoe Kravitz, that beautiful creature. Damn her. —erica

Lenny Kravitz: A loud Yarnz scarf, a leather jacket from Billy Reid, and striped pants by Neil Barrett.

Lisa Bonet: A colorful Growing Jewelry necklace, a floral patchwork shirt from Markus Lupfer, and Saturdays sunglasses.

For more old favorites, head this way.

Faces are having a moment—and not just on heads. Just ask Anna Wintour! Four ways to get portrait-happy. —erica

LEVEL I: Leah Goren presents a whole gang of gals to protect a pouch full of valuables.

LEVEL II: Sequin censorship—the only kind we can get behind—c/o Markus Lupfer.

LEVEL III: Something about this Victoria Beckham tunic reminds me of that young woman/old witch illusion. You know?

LEVEL IV: That’s Rapunzel on these Charlotte Olympia shoes, in case you can’t tell from her flowing golden locks.

Take your “Next Level” consumption to the next level, why don’t you.

Couple Up: Evan Rachel Wood and Marilyn Manson

image

Remember how CRAY it was when Evan Rachel Wood started dating Marilyn Manson? She was 19, and he was 36. She was the girl from Practical Magic and Thirteen, and he was known for his onstage, er, antics. But we’ll give them this: They were together for four whole years, which is like two decades in Hollywood time. Here’s how we’ll always remember them. —erica

Evan Rachel Wood: An oversize tux jacket by Alexander Wang, a red pleated Tibi skirt, and Jeffrey Campbell mary janes.

Marilyn Manson: A hardware-less Alexander Wang moto jacket, a Markus Lupfer skull tee, and AJ Morgan tortoise aviators.

Reminisce about more one-time twosomes here.

Remember, long before Mary-Kate and Ashley were mooovie stars and fashion powerhouses, when they were just tots hanging out on set of Wake Up, San Francisco and helping Uncle Jesse with his girl dramz? Well, are you ready to see how to swipe their Full House look? YOU GOT IT, DUDE. —erica

Next Level: Lips

In honor of V-day, y’all, —erica

LEVEL I: Delfina Delettrez shows your wrist a little love.

LEVEL II: Who says you gotta stick to red and pink? Roseanna gets all moody with her black ‘n blue print.

LEVEL III: Lizzie Fortunato demonstrates that SWAK works even better if you employ embroidery.

LEVEL IV: Markus Lupfer—never the type to hold back.

More four-part harmonies this way…
